I really like these shots of the eye and this blue ribbon winner really caught my "eye". This tourist site is still a wonderful place for night shots and the eye is just sitting there waiting. Also enjoyed meeting the actual ribbon winner at the LON GTG..timing is evrything. Nothing special...usual CS2 stuff.

I can't seem to find the exact ribbon winning original you are emulating so I am just going to critique the photo just on this composition alone. Nice time exposure with some really stand out bold color hues popping off of the London Eye. Those electric violet hues really contrast and compliment the night sky nicely. You also have some nice detail of the surrounding buildings as well as good exposure of their light levels for there are no blown highlights at all. My only suggestions to improve this photo is to adjust the contrast just a litttlllle bit to make those colors pop more off the night sky. Lastly I think the tall building visually breaks the circle of the London Eye. Would it have been possible to change your angle such that the building is on the outside of the ring so that the circle remains 'unblocked' visually; not to mention it would stand out more on the night sky.

I am having trouble locating the original to this image. I did find ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Pixelstate's image but didn't think that would be the one you are referring to. So I can only score this image based on itself. I like the colours and composition but feel it is a little flat. But don't worry...it's still a 6 in my book.

Ahh yes...I have now found it. Thankyou for helping me out on that. I can see that you have really tried to emulate the original. Well done. And thankyou for solving that riddle for me.

I prefer the symetry of the straight on views of this Eye, but yours is good too. 6

Nicely done. Although I prefer his angle, I prefer your colors.
